The X.509 Certificate Generator is a multi purpose certificate utility. It can be used to generate X.509 certificates on PFX files or Smart Card, preview certificates or change key usage extensions.
A Certification Authority issues digital certificates which contain a public key and the identity of the owner. The certificates are issued in PFX (Personal inFormation eXchange) file format protected by a password.
Certificates provide the foundation of a public key infrastructure (PKI). These are electronic credentials, issued by a certification authority (CA), that are associated with a public and private key pair.
Our Certification Authority Server works as an IIS application for most Windows webservers. That means it is not required to operate an extra CA machine.
